Dear Romeo,
I think Charlie Frye did a wonderful job as the starting quaterback. I do not know why you pulled him. Please keep doing what your doing and don't change anything.

Please fire Crennel. If he want to do what is best for the team he would start Brady Quinn. What possibly is the advantage of having Frye or Anderson face these so called good defenses here at the beginning of the season. Crennel acts like Brady is some kind of high school kid who has never played football before.

The math is simple.

If Quinn starts that means Crennel has one more game to prove his worth. If Quinn doesn't start that means he has till the "bye" week. Either way Mr. Nice Guy is out.

My guess is that Quinn starts because his job is on the line contingent on the out come.

If I'm ownership I'm talking to you know who and begging for him to return. The franchise has never been in worst shape even under Davis. A Quinn/Cowler combination sounds promising, and the fans will pay to see.

Is this the only thing you know how to write about is Brady Quinn....Please - the last article I read by you.
I cannot believe that a sports writer can't see that the quarterback problem is NOT the only problem that this team has. Damn, give it up.

OK Pat. Enough about Quinn.

Let's change the subject. Let's talk about all of Joe Thomas' "Lookout" blocks against the Steelers on Sunday. If someone should be riding the pines in order to acclimate to the league, it should be Thomas.

Joe is probably doubting his abilities now. He's thinking "Gee! Maybe I'm really NOT cut out for playing in the NFL".

His career is likely destroyed before it even begins, with that wimpy performance on Sunday.

The coaches should have known better.

Look - Quinn is the future but why take a chance of him getting a serious injury - run those other two clowns out there and let them take the punishment. Let Quinn take over after the bye week - the Browns aren't going anywhere anyway this year.

A team as weak as Cleveland is cannot afford to carry a player like Baxter that cannot play. IR him or cut him.

One stiff at QB is plenty - pick one and cut the other.

Down by 17 and we suddenly think we can throw the ball? When you're a bad team, stick with one thing, do it well. Stay with the running game, run clock and hopefully score points. Good teams can change their game plan and throw the ball the Browns can't.

Crennel doesn't have a lot to work with, but the talent he has is improving each year - unfortunately his leadership isn't. Carthon was the whipping boy last year - rightfully so - but he wasn't the only problem. Crennel MUST be let go.

The defense MUST improve for the Browns to have any chance to win 4 games this year. I don't see any teams in the league that are worse than the Browns are.

When the Cowboys pick 1st or 2nd next year with our first pick, remember we have Quinn - lets hope they use him wisely THIS year and it won't be as painful watching the draft next year.

I guess my question would be to all those who call for Crenell's head is.....WITH WHOM DO YOU INTEND TO REPLACE HIM WITH? Coach Bill Cowher isn't coming here anytime soon, if ever!!!!! Also, what if "The Chin" fails like Crenell? All of those who want Romeo to be fired act as if that will solve all the problems that the Browns have... They have replaced so many coaches, players and front office people over the last 8+ years. Don't you people know what hasn't changed? A CULTURE OF LOSING!!! No replacement of coaches or players cannot change a belief that you cannot win (no matter what).

You don't replace a coach's entire offensive staff(with his consent), give his defensive coordinator a contract extension (you all forgot about this), draft three young players that can help sooner rather than later, revamp the offensive line, and then fire the coach because a bunch of fans and pundits say he is on the hot seat. What kind of "sheep mentality" is this? I know that all of you are frustrated but MY GOD!! I agree that Crenell must show some leadership and get mad, but who's to say that he isn't upset or demands excellence on the field PRIVATELY? The Browns need stability, not more instability!

At least OHIO has one team that can Play football. Then bengals won last night and I'm sure we will see many more. As for the browns, well what's new? It's a losing team and always will be one.

With the way the cleveland coaching staff does things the towel boy will play before Quinn does. If they would of let him play they would of scored more then just one touchdown. Quinn would be better off with another team, any team would be better then the browns.

Ditto Pat and Zippy! For heavens sake, stopping pushing Quinn! I hate to keep beating a dead horse, but remember Tim Couch? The Browns ruined him by putting him in too soon. Also, give the kid a year to be mentored by Ken Dorsey (I hope). I don't care how many college games he played. Playing in the NFL is different than playing college football! Surely, all you "experts" know that.

This team will not improve until the fans stop supporting mediocrity. Realize ownership could care less about the fans. Keep selling out the stadium game after game, year after after year, keep renewing your seaon tickets and be prepared for mediocrity for as long as you live. Why should they bother unless you insist on it. Dont you understand this is why we hire head coaches with no experience? How bout we compare salaries of Romeo, Butch, and Palmer to those of Dungy, Buttcheck, and others. This is NOT just a player problem. Havent you heard it rolls down hill?? WAKE UP!!

Meanwhile support your tribe instead of having blind faith in a team that couldnt care less about you!

The Browns are going to suck this year regardless of who is taking the snaps. At best, they will win 5 games. Brady Quinn may be the "future", but he is not the "savior". Starting him now has absolutely no upside. Let the slap-dummy twins (Frye and Anderson) continue to get pummeled until after the bye week.

There is no QB in football that can overcome our lack of defense. Brady would not have changed the outcome of this past game.
I am still waiting to see improvement over the past 4+ of losing seasons.

I think Quinn can make a difference. Sure, he's not going to come in and win every game but I think he can move the ball and put points on the board. That would have a huge affect on the rest of the team. I believe the confidence this team has will snowball. With Frye and Anderson the snow is melting! Couch didn't have a supporting cast when he was put in. Quinn does. Plus Quinn is head and shoulders above Couch in abilities.
We've got the players. We just need a leader.

Frye is going to Seattle. That is what WKNR is reporting.
